Marvel cinematic universe breakdown

Even if you’re a fan of Marvel Studios movies since they created their own cinematic universe that began with Iron Man in 2008, there’s still some pretty confusing elements that have surfaced throughout the first two phases of these interconnected comic book franchises, especially if you’re not a die hard Marvel fan.

Thankfully, YouTube user Garcatch has decided to put together an unhelpful, overly snarky, breakdown of the entire Marvel cinematic universe so far. If you’ve been watching the Marvel movies so far, you won’t find any new information here. But you will find a series of quips trying to describe the motion picture phenomenon in eight minutes.

The Avengers Group

One of the many reasons people continue to show up in droves to Marvel movies is they want to see what happens next. With each subsequent film, short or TV show, one cohesive story continues to unfold. It’s serial moviemaking.

That means, hypothetically, if you wanted to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as one movie, you could. They were conceived as a single story all linking together, so why not edit them into one huge movie? You can and that’s exactly what some Marvel fans have done. However, while that’s cool on its own, they’ve gone one step further. They’ve created a video letting people know how to make their own edit of Phase One in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one, chronological movie. Check out the how to Marvel Phase One Timeline video below. Read More »

Marvel Phase 3 Kevin Feige

Today in Hollywood Disney held a Marvel Event to announce their plans for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I was in attendance at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd for the announcements, which have already been covered elsewhere on the site.

After the event was over and the fans in attendance were escorted out of the theatre, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige gave a 20 minute question and answer session answering all of the press’ questions about the newly revealed Marvel Phase 3 slate and even some answers that extend beyond that (phase 4, 5…etc). I was able to record the entire question and answer session on video using my IPhone, and have uploaded the entire thing for you to watch. So hit the jump now to watch Kevin Feige answer all your questions about Marvel Phase 3 and beyond.

When The Wire first aired, basically everyone on it was a fresh face. Fast forward a decade and watching it is like watching an All Star Game. Several actors from the classic David Simon TV show broke out to become house hold names: Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, Lance Reddick and more. Michael K. Williams has also continued to break out. He played the villain with a heart Omar on the show and has since went onto do Boardwalk Empire, 12 Years A Slave, Robocop, The Purge: Anarchy and more.

Right around the time The Wire went off the air though, Williams booked a small role in Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk. Unfortunately, when the film came out, it was cut down to about five seconds. Read the story of Michael K Williams Incredible Hulk cameo below. Read More »

Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.

The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

Avengers - Hulk

Kevin Feige may be done making big announcements until 2014, but that doesn’t mean he can’t drop a few hints between now and then. The Marvel Studios head reportedly has things planned out (albeit tentatively) through about 2021, and during an interview at D23 he offered some clues about what he has in store.

Among other things, Feige promises we’ll see more of the Hulk and Hawkeye. One hero we won’t see pop up in the MCU, however, is Namor the Sub-Mariner. As Feige points out, Universal currently holds the rights to that particular sea creature. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Benton Jew Hulk concept art header

The Hulk has been notoriously tricky to get right on the big screen, but thanks to his enduring popularity as a character plenty of people have tried. One man, concept artist Benton Jew, has even made the attempt three times.

Jew first worked on bids for Jonathan Hensleigh‘s unmade 1997 Hulk film and Ang Lee‘s 2003 Hulk, before getting hired in 2007 as a storyboard artist on Louis Leterrier‘s The Incredible Hulk. The illustrator recently took to his blog to share his work from those experiences, including mock-ups of Lee’s original choice Billy Crudup as Bruce Banner. Check ’em out after the jump!
